On Friday, February 26, The Argus published an opinion piece by one of its regular columnists (“The Price is Wrong”) that has since been removed from the website. The opinion piece contained allegations which neither the writer nor The Argus’s editorial board could substantiate. Moreover, the accusations were written in unnecessarily derisive language.
The Argus’s editorial board did not remove the article on legal grounds; rather, the article in question did not meet the standards of accuracy that The Argus applies to all articles published under its editorial stamp. We would like to apologize for any damage this piece may have inadvertently caused, as well as encourage a more constructive dialogue in the future.
